What to Bring for Okavango Delta Macatoo Safari

The luggage is strictly limited to 20 kgs (26 lbs) per person, including hand luggage, carried in soft bags on the light aircraft into the Delta. Extra luggage can be stored in our Maun office.
For safety and logistical reasons all bags must be soft sided and easily manageable with a maximum dimension of 35cm x 70cm. Hard suitcases and bags with wheels or frames will not be able to fit into the aircrafts resulting in clients having to repack before they are able to fly.

All clothing should be neutral colored to blend in with the bush (preferably shades of khaki, brown, beige or green). Please AVOID wearing WHITE. Light weight cottons are advisable. Please take into consideration when you are coming as the weather does vary, check the climate for the time of year. We recommend that you bring your riding clothes, boots, helmet on the plane with you as carry on as luggage sometimes gets delayed!!

Please note that insurance companies may only cover you if you wear a properly fitted recognized riding helmet. We do not provide any so please bring your own!

Macatoo provide a complimentary laundry service, although for hygiene reasons we do not wash underwear. Washing powder will be provided in your room for this purpose. Towels are provided.

Basic first aid kit is available in camp but please make sure to bring any prescription medication with you. Please consult your doctor regarding anti-malarial and inoculations!

We recommend that you bring:    
*A light-weight riding hat    
*A shade hat with strap    
*Two pairs of light-weight riding shoes    
*Sunglasses on string, riding gloves and bandana
